Fotuali'i and Fruean named in Barbarians squad

23 May 2017

Bath Rugby’s Kahn Fotuali’i and Robbie Fruean have been named in the Barbarians 27-man strong squad to face England on May 28 and Ulster on June 1.

Fotuali’i has enjoyed an impressive first season at Bath since joining last summer from Northampton Saints, winning Best Back and Supporters’ Player of the Year at the Club’s Annual Awards Evening.

The scrum-half will return to the ‘Baa Baas’ squad after playing against the British & Irish Lions in 2013 and will be joined in the backline by teammate Fruean, who finished the season strongly following his injury layoff.
